What A Difference A Year MakesPosted: November 1, 2012
This Halloween was so much different than last year. Last year I was able to pick out your costume and hope and prayed that you loved it enough to wear it through at least the pictures. I was lucky enough to get a few good ones. Unfortunately, you hated the hat so after a short while, the cute yoda hat was removed.
This year you picked out your own costume, which I still am trying to understand. (Tow Mater from Cars with muscles?????)
Last year we went trick or treating but didn’t get any candy. I carried you around and watched Kaelyn fill her bucket.
This year you and Kaelyn walked up to the door and said “trick or treat” all on your own. You even wanted to go inside everyone’s home. You said “Thank you” and were so excited to see your pumpkin fill with candy. I loved seeing your face light up at seeing all the other kids walking around in costumes too.
The biggest change was watching you in Daddy’s arms when he was in his scary costume. Each year, Uncle Dan and Daddy dress up to scare the big kids that come by trick or treating. Uncle Dan decorates the front yard and even project scary movies on the garage door. It’s quite a production and last year you were terrified in Daddy’s arms as long as he was wearing the scary mask.
How I love watching you grow up! I can’t wait to see what next year has in store for us.
